Woodside Makes Gas Discovery with Zena-1 Offshore Australia
Woodside Petroleum Ltd reports that the Xena-1ST1 exploration well in Western Australia's Carnarvon Basin has reached a total depth of 3490 meters. Wireline logs are currently being run on what is interpreted to be a new gas field discovery. Preliminary analysis indicates a gross gas column of about 49 meters in good quality reservoir sandstones.
Transocean's Jack Bates semisub has drilled the well. The well is about 180km northwest of Karratha and 6km east of the Pluto-2 appraisal well. Water depth at the location is 178 meters.
Woodside has a 100% interest in WA-350-P. This permit also contains the Pluto gas field.
